Kopin President and CEO Dr. John Fan to Deliver Keynote Address at Eurodisplay 2007


Invited Talk to Showcase New Advances and Applications of Microdisplays

TAUNTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 17, 2007--Kopin Corporation (Nasdaq: KOPN), the largest U.S. manufacturer of microdisplays for commercial and military applications, today announced that President and Chief Executive Officer Dr. John C.C. Fan will deliver a keynote address Tuesday, September 18 at Eurodisplay 2007, an annual international research conference hosted by the Society for Information Display (SID). Dr. Fan's speech, "Emergence of Microdisplays: New Exciting Advances and Applications," will center on recent scientific breakthroughs in microdisplay technology and how these achievements are reshaping everything from portable entertainment devices to sophisticated military systems. Eurodisplay 2007 will take place Sept. 17-20 at the Office Building of The Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow, Russia.

"Microdisplay technology is enabling an unprecedented level of mobility, which we call 'Big Pictures on the Go,' that is fundamentally changing the way we see and communicate information," Dr. Fan said. "Kopin has played a pivotal role in establishing its transmissive liquid crystal display (LCD) as the standard microdisplays for high-volume, full-color product applications, and I am excited about the range of emerging opportunities for our technology in the future."

Dr. Fan's keynote address will highlight Kopin's proprietary CyberDisplay manufacturing process. Protected by more than 100 patents, the CyberDisplay microdisplay employs the same architecture as large LCD TV screens to create full-color displays, but is capable of scaling the high-definition TV to the size of a postage stamp. As the only transmissive LCD based on single-crystal silicon integrated circuit technology, Kopin's CyberDisplay enables simpler and thinner optics for compact display modules. These modules are ideal for video on the go, military systems and other applications that demand easy portability.

"In just a few years, Kopin's CyberDisplay technology has ushered in revolutionary new products across all segments of the market," Dr. Fan said. "Today, our commitment to innovation remains as strong as ever. We continue to achieve breakthroughs in size and performance, enabling 'digital eyes' that extend the ability of human eyes to see in new and dramatic ways."
